Being an Alpha Delta Pi means giving back. A chapter of our own personal philanthropy, the Ronald McDonald House Charities, has a location right around the corner from our house which means we are able to give our time as well as our fundraising efforts. Whether it be volunteer exchanges with fraternities, fundraiser feeds at our chapter house or craft nights at the RMHC, we at Alpha Delta Pi love to give back. For the RMHC as well as other organizations, we have raised over $18,500 and given countless hours in the past year alone.
Not only does Alpha Delta Pi host our own philanthropy events, but we also love participating in other Greek houses’ philanthropies! We believe it is important to support all Greek chapters and their philanthropic endeavors throughout the University of Washington community. Our sisters are involved in many different charity organizations within the University of Washington, including the UW Dream Project and Best Buddies. Our chapter also participates in Relay for Life at UW, Dance Marathon UW, Seattle's Hot Chocolate Run, and many sorority and fraternity philanthropy weeks.
Run For Ronald 5k
As a way to give back during these challenging times, the Alpha Theta chapter of ADPi decided to host its first ever virtual 5k! Run for Ronald took place on May 18 with over 200 participants. Participants gathered all over the U.S. and walked, ran, and skipped a 5k! We raised over $18,000 and all proceeds went to our national philanthropy, the Ronald McDonald House Charities.
This year, we will host our third annual Run for Ronald. Only this year, we are excited to be able to host it in person on the UW campus and surrounding Seattle area! We are so excited to see and be able to share these memories and experiences with everyone!
Please join us in supporting our philanthropy RMHC! We will be updating you all as soon as possible about our upcoming 5k.
